Welcome Home: Design Your Abode As A Sanctuary Attuned To Your Well Being
For 14 years and counting, Tatler Homes Singapore has chronicled notable design projects in Singapore and around the world. Ahead of its 15th anniversary, we mark its next milestone with a brand new look that stays true to the overarching ethos of the magazine and its role as the arbiter to the most powerful, influential and stylish tastemakers in the fields of design and architecture.
The first major revamp for the title in five years, this magazine’s visual transformation takes cues from the refined aesthetic and editorial direction of Tatler Asia, while conveying the title’s elevated approach to design.

Our personality-driven stories on interior design, furnishings, and architecture are complemented with lifestyle features ranging from travel to wellness. We feature industry leaders who are charting new frontiers as well as creative minds behind projects that set a high bar in terms of aesthetics, functionality and sustainability.
The world of interiors seeks longevity—and turning a house into a home certainly is not a feat achieved overnight. Through these pages, we place the spotlight on the designers that make the transformation effortless while sharing inspiring ways to spruce up your abode. To create spaces that stand the test of time, architects, designers and industry leaders alike constantly act as creative seers, anticipating the ways that we will live, work and play.
Our April issue celebrates this by recognising the impact of good design on our well being, particularly in the spaces that we inhabit. A thoughtfully crafted home can create an uplifting effect on both our mental and emotional state, a contribution that is much needed in times of uncertainty when working from home has become the norm.
Start with the small things. Add a cheerful touch with yellow accent pieces and peruse the latest outdoor collections that encourage you to relax and take in some fresh air. Then, recreate the elements of your favourite spas and resorts at home with the newest bathroom trends.

With more of us spending time indoors, take the opportunity to incorporate greenery into your dwelling. Air plants are a top choice—these sturdy species are low-maintenance and a calming sight, whether in your bedroom or living area. Improve the spatial flow of your residence by being mindful of the decorative elements you select, or through incorporating the ancient art of feng shui into your interior. We speak to hospitality designers Rengy John and Clint Nagata of Blink Design Group about the elements that add to a holistic interior, as well as Thierry Chow of Go Lucky for feng shui advice.
